This is to share my travelling experience, wherein I have travelled to few of the world’s best countries & places within India along with my parents during our annual holidays.


To plan a wanderlust one must confess that how throughly he/she enjoys travelling to different places.  The entire process of travelling from selection of destination, to selection of tickets, hotels and sight- seeing, packing ( doing shopping for the missing things) your bags, booking the Ola/Uber taxi to airport, the in flight TV entertainments (also the games) is so much fun.


The choice of destination is very different for different people from an international place to a place in India or from a historical place to more vibrant place (with many options for kids). The pleasure of travelling, understanding the culture of the place, meeting new people, having the local food (junk food also), travelling through local transport (taxi, bus, trains at time boats) and the long walks. The hop-on-hop-off is the best way for sight- seeing as they also give audio recordings.


Travelling always give (me for sure) a little bit of every place, culture, history and lot of excitement. The souvenirs bought (we have many on our fridge) always remind of the good time one enjoys during travelling and also the time you spend with your parents and friends.The experience of travelling is always so much of fun.




People say I am wanderlust,

Because I travel to places so far and near without any fuss;

These people don’t know anything about me and what my dreams are.

For example, they do not know that my dream place is New York City.


One day, my friend found out about this and told me “Oh! What a pity,

That you haven’t yet gone to the great New York city.”

At that very moment and in a jiff, I bought my tickets to my dream place

Got into the plane and shouted at the pilot “Go at a higher pace!”


First, I went to the Liberty Statue,

And saw a building being made new.

While I was eating candy floss,

I saw the brand new model of Porsche.

Then I dived into my hotel’s pool,

Which I thought was super cool.


As I was in the plane coming home I thought,

I wish I could have stayed a little more,

But hey I am wanderlust and there are still a thousand miles to go!





There are nine planets in one such place

which is called outer space


Where billions of stars twinkle each night

making the sky full of light


The dominant sun gives out its eloquent rays

increasing the temperature of the days

Image result for sun and earth


There are elusive comets and shooting stars

which we look at and wish from far

Where a moon, enormous and white

reflects the sun’s extremely bright light


There may be many rumors about aliens and UFO’s

people say that they have green hands, legs and toes


The marvellous outer space is filled with magic and mystery

that is exactly the place I’d want to see!





Vacation Destination: London

London is one of my favourite vacation spots. I go to London almost every year because my grandfather lives there. I always have fun as we do something new every year. This year we did a lot of shopping, met my grandfather and even did a little sightseeing.

This year my hotel was right next to the Wembley stadium. For the first few days we spent time with my grandfather, and then came my favourite part: the shopping! We went to the London designer outlet and shopped for shoes and clothes.  One time we even went swimming in the indoor pool because of the weather outside.

After two weeks at the hotel we went to stay at my aunt’s house. I really enjoy visiting her because she is also fond of drawing, just like me, and she always teaches me something new..

We went to meet my cousins, and I enjoyed their company a lot. Together all of us went to a dessert parlour and stuffed ourselves. I had a blue bubblegum ice-cream that was massive, and at the end of it my tongue was blue! Later, we visited some more shops and ended up buying loads of shoes, clothes, accessories and even gifts for my friends. oxford street

We had decided to take a double decker bus to Oxford Street, and the view from the top was so amazing. We even saw a musical called ‘Mamma Mia”. The songs were taken from an album of the famous band “ABBA”. It was a wonderful experience.

We came back from this wonderful trip on the 7th of June and I was sad that my vacation officially ended, but I got to see my friends after a long time and felt very happy to see them

The Last Wish

All I could see was black. An infinite amount of nothingness no matter where you looked. It was art; a depressing sight for a common man. The sense of loneliness scared many, and the dangers scared the rest. But still, it gave me joy. I had sacrificed my everything for this. It was certain that not all crew members would return. But they didn’t fear the unknown, the red planet. I wondered what could be happening back home while I planted foot on the face of an unknown world. At a distance far greater than one could imagine, I could see Earth. The greens, dominated by the blues. I looked out through thick glass which held against the vacuum of outer space.   Image result for mars

It’s where my father had lived….and died. He was an astrobiologist. His research was what enabled us to understand what we would face as we twisted the rules and skipped the boundaries that the universe imposed on us. He died in an accident on the space station. What caused it is confidential and only few individuals know the truth. I was here only because of him. I remember his last words to me as he boarded the spacecraft. “Son, no one knows what my fate is. I am headed into a realm, answers of which still await our questions. I always dreamt of exploring the unexplored. I want you to go places we think are impossible to reach. Make me proud my boy, I love you.” I made up my mind then and there that I would live up to my father’s expectations and I would come back home one day, and tell him about it. I promised him that I would do whatever it takes. It became the goal and the driving force of my life. And it’s time now. It’s time I fulfilled his wish. Although I’m one step away from my goal, I’m forever away from my father.

अंतरिक्ष – भारतीय योगदान

वर्तमान युग अंतरिक्ष और कम्प्यूटर का युग है। अंतरिक्ष का न तो आरंभ है और न अंत । यह एक ऐसा विशाल शून्य है जिसका निरंतर विस्तार हो रहा है । सभी चीजों- आकाश गंगाओं, ग्रहों, नक्षत्रों, धूमकेतुओं, ब्लैक होल्स आदि का इस में समावेश है । यह एक बड़ा विशाल रहस्यमय और अलौकिक ब्रह्मांड है । मानव प्रारंभ से ही अंतरिक्ष में यात्रा करने का स्वप्न देखता रहा है । आकाश-यात्रा की काल्पनिक कहानियां और कथाएं हमारे साहित्य में प्रारंभ से ही रही हैं । रॉकेट का आविष्कार अंतरिक्ष-यात्रा की ओर पहला महत्वपूर्ण कदम था । इनकी सहायता से कृत्रिम उपग्रह छोड़ने का क्रम प्रारंभ हुआ । रूस ने पहले स्युतनिक आकाश में छोड़े । उसने सर्वप्रथम लायका नामक

 एक कुतिया को रॉकेट के माध्यम से अंतरिक्ष में भेजा । फिर युरी गगारिन सबसे पहले अंतरिक्ष में गये । चंद्रमा पर मानव की विजय एक बहुत बड़ी उपलब्धि थी जिसका श्रेय अमेरिका को जाता है । उसके दो एस्ट्रॉनॉट्‌स सबसे पहले चन्द्रमा की धरती पर उतरे थे । मानव की ज्ञान-पिपासा का कोई अंत नहीं । जैसे-जैसे उसका अंतरिक्ष-ज्ञान आगे बढ़ता है, उसकी जिज्ञासा और भी बढ़ती जाती है ।भारत भी अंतरिक्ष अनुसंधान और अन्वेषण में लगा हुआ है । लेकिन रूस और अमेरिका की तुलना में अभी बहुत पीछे हैं । 3 अप्रैल, 1984 के ऐतिहासिक दिन भारत का पहला व्यक्ति अंतरिक्ष में गया था । वह व्यक्ति राकेश शर्मा थे । 

यह रूस और भारत के बीच एक लम्बे सहयोग का परिणाम था ।भारतीय मूल की अमेरिकी नागरिक कल्पना चावला पहली ऐसी महिला हैं जिन्हें अंतरिक्ष में जाने का सुअवसर मिला ।

A Change For Good

I thank Mrs.Kumar for changing my elective from Physical Education to Yoga.

I was really disappointed at first that my elective had been changed.Now after two years of Yoga and finally getting done with it, I think back and honestly it was one of the best things that happened to me. Yoga has improved my concentration and has also made me more calm. It is because of Yoga that I am doing well in my studies.

Yoga has changed my life and getting Yoga does not mean you are dull or not very smart but if you get Yoga you should be blessed as it influences your life in a good way.

Later on in my life Yoga will help me make the right decisions and it will also help  me to keep my life moderate and not make me greedy.Yoga is good. Thank you Ma’am.

यादे इन दिनों की

आज से बीस साल के बाद,

जब हम अपनी-अपनी ज़िन्दगी में डूब जायेंगे,Image result for childhood memories wallpaper

दफ्तर, नौकरी, परिवार के साथ,
मन के किसी कोने में रहेंगी आज -कल की बात?

जब रेडियो पर २०१६ का गाना बजेगा,
क्या हम इसी तरह जी भर के गा पाएंगे ?
या हम सुनकर, यादो में सिर्फ खो जाएंगे?

पाठशाला में मित्र से लड़ाई-झगड़ा,
अध्यापिका  की डाँट,
दोस्तों से हँसी-मज़ाक का सिलसिला ,
क्या हर पल, हर कदम हम भूल पाएंगे?

हर सहेली का चेहरा,हर टीचर की वाणी,
हम सब को आज लगती है जो प्यारी,
परंतु जैसे समय का पहिया घूमेगा ,
यह पल भी हमारे मन से मिट जायेंगे|

यह  ज़िन्दगी का सुनहरा पन्ना ,
हर दिन,हर पल को जी भर के जीना,
ओस की  बूंदो जैसे यह यादे भी मिट जाएंगी ||

विस्मृति भी वरदान है……..

जीवन मे कभी-कभी कुछ प्यारा-सा खो जाता है,Image result for memories wallpaper
प्रियतम वस्तु के खो जाने से,
जीवन फिर अर्थहीन-सा हो जाता है।

मेरी सुख स्मृति, मेरे बचपन के मज़ेदार दिन  है,
पीछे मुड़ कर हम कभी उन पलों को नहीं पाएँगे,
सुख के लम्हे-दुख के लम्हे खो जाएँगे,
आनेवाला दिन कुछ नया दिखाएगा।

कुछ खो जाने से समय नहीं थम जाता है,
जीवन की गति चलती रहेगी,
दुख के क्षण पीछे छूट जाएँगे।

स्मृति जैसे मनुष्य के मन का मान है,
विस्मृति मनुष्य को प्रभु का वरदान है,
दोनों के होने से जीवन आसान है!

Memories I Cherish


“The brightest memory fades faster than the dullest ink.” ~Claudia Rankine.

I never really visited many places within India, as I thought there was not really much to do here except to visit ancient temples or valleys, which I wasn’t much a fannnnnnnn of. But Rishikesh was unusual. when my mother told me about it“ Oh, another boring old place I thought. But no, was I in for a ride! Exactly the opposite of what I expected, it was one of the most adventurous and exciting places I had ever visited.

The place I was staying at was called Atali Ganga, due to its situation in Atali Dogi, and it being close to the river bank of the Ganges. I busied myself with  white water rafting.  Although it isn’t  much of a deal for many people, getting up at six in the morning and pushing a raft forward twenty kilometers using all my strength, was quite a big one for me, and a fun one too. The most entertaining part of rafting, as anyone who has done it will know, is the rapids  in the river. Just as my fellow raft-mates and I saw one up ahead, we knew we were in for some thrills. Clutching the side of the raft, while swift river rapids are tumbling your raft side-to-side, sometimes even upside-down, is quite an exhilarating experience! Even the people rafting with me were quite cheerful, and made us all laugh, while an old man encouraged me too to do somersaults  off the boat with him.

Although it was for a very short time, and not as thrilling as some would say adventures were, it was one of the best that I have had, and gave me some of my most cherished memories.

Demonetization, fake currency notes and black money. These are the only words we are hearing when eavesdropping. Whether it’s a discussion between small children in school or senior citizens at a park. On 8th of November 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi annoRelated imageunced that after midnight Rs.1000 and Rs.500 notes will not be accepted as a legal tender anywhere except in petrol pumps, hospitals and chemists. He also mentioned that people can exchange their money up to Rs. 4000 everyday to elaborate further he said that the withdrawing limit was Rs. 20,000 per week.

This change was desperately needed. This change was made merely for the people having black money. To elucidate further Pakistan was continuously printing fake currency notes and circulating it in the Indian market. This was a strategy of the Pakistani government to destabilize the rich Indian economy. This modification which would sweep out corruption and ring in a cleaner economy was procrastinated by many in the past. This alteration is bringing in difficulty but all of this is for a better tomorrow. Only the people having black money will oppose the government. Narendra Modi has risked his chances of winning the election in the next term.

Narendra Modi has bitten the bullet right now. Though he will have to face a few short term challenges, the bird’s eye view of the future India is clear, clean and corruption free. Our Prime Minister has proved today the lines of Mahatma Gandhi. He said and I quote “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

A Changing Society is a Progressive Society

The recent demonetization scheme introduced by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi is a positive change in our society that will lead to the progress of our nation.

This scheme aims at extracting all the illegal money owned by Indian individuals and companies thereby making India a corruption free country. By implementing the scheme of demonetization, the government aims at putting a stop on dishonest dealings and other malpracticeImage result for 2000 rupees notes and our aspirations of becoming an ideal nation will be accomplished. In my opinion, this is a very bold decision taken by the Prime Minister and must be supported by all the citizens.

Although people have to wait in long queues outside banks, ATMs etc to exchange or withdraw money to carry on their day-to-day transactions, they are willing to do so for the betterment of the country as demonetization will ensure elimination of counterfeit currency. People are logically thinking about why this tough stand was taken.

We must ensure that all optimistic decisions of the government get full support from the citizens so that we achieve success. If this goal is accomplished, we will be able transform India into an ideal state and progress towards making India a superpower……

Journey of Computers through Time


The first computer was as large as a 20 x 40 feet room and weighed 30 tons. TodaImage result for computer cliparty computers fit easily on our desks and now we even have portable computers also known as laptops which vary in different sizes.

But the most shocking is the Michigan Micro Mote, which has been deemed the world’s smallest computer an
d can fit seamlessly along the edge of a nickel and its volume is about one millimeter cube!

Although computers have technically been in use since the abacus approximately 5000 years ago, it is modern computers that have had the greatest and most profound effect on society. The first full-sized digital computer in history was developed in 1944. Called the Mark I, this computer was used only for calculations and weighed five tons. Despite its size and limited ability it was the first of many that would start off generations of computer development and growth.


Today is the age of the Fifth Generation of Computers and it is yet to be completely defined, as there are numerous paths that technology is taking toward the future of computer development.

The progress of computers, from one which takes up the space of three rooms to one smaller than a nickel, reflects the progress of not only our scientific knowledge but also our society and hence we learn that a changing society is a progressive society.

सुखद  स्मृति

स्मृतियाँ हमारे जीवन में सबसे बड़ी भूमिका निभाती हैं जो हमें अपने अतीत में फिर से जीने के लिए आग्रह करती हैं।इसी के साथ मैं अपने बचपन की एक सुखद स्मृति बाँटना चाहती हूँ। जब मैं छोटी थी, तब मैं हर रोज़ अपनी नानी के घर अपने छोटे भाkkkkkई के साथ खेलने जाती थी।तब कोई पढ़ाई का बोझ न था। वहाँ हम दोस्तों के साथ खेलते और खूब मस्ती करते। छुट्टियों के दिन देर से सोते और देर से उठते। फिर एक रात हमने फ़ैसला लिया कि हर छुट्टी की रात, हम कुछ नया और मज़ेदार करेंगे। उसके बाद धीरे-धीरे हम बाहर जाने लगे। कभी-कभी हम बाहर से ‘चोको बार’ की  आइस-क्रीम मँगाते या ठंडी हवा का मज़ा उठाकर बग़ीचे में टहलते। इसे हम “नाइट वॉक” बुलाने लगे।एक रात हमारे दोस्त के मामाजी ने हमें उनकी बड़ी गाड़ी में घुमाने के लिए ले गए।हम सब जाने के लिए बहुत उत्साहित थे। हम देर रात को अपने रात के कपड़ो में नीचे उतरकर जल्दी से गाड़ी में बैठ गए।जैसे ही मामाजी ने गाड़ी चलाना शुरू कर दिया
हमने खिड़की के काँचों को नीचे किया और हम ज़ोर ज़ोर से गाना गाने लगे। उसके बाद हम बहुत मज़ाक़ करने लगे और पागलों की तरह अपने नाक से जान बूझकर हँसने लगे।लौटने के बाद हम सीधा घर गए।मैंने कभी पहले इतना मज़ा नहीं किया जितना मैंने उस रात किया।काश मैं फिर से “नाइट वॉक” के लिए जा सकूँ।

The Songs Of Music

Music  has its roots through ancient times.

The boundaries of music are not confined to humans but include every aspect of our environment as everything has its own sound and rhythm, one can find music in the movement of leaves, sound  of rain drops, breaking of waves on the shores, chirping of birds, singing of dolphin, etc.

Our mind can be  relaxed with music. Music is the medicine for a tired mind. Mausiki has been the medium to communicate feelings and emotions to one other since ages, which means ‘Where Words Fail, Music Speaks’.  

The mention of lord Krishna conjures an image of a peacock feather on his head and a flute in his hands. HRelated imageis music which would not only enamour people but also cast a spell on animals as well.

Music is the universal language of mankind. A child in his mother’s womb is not familiar with the sounds but clearly responds to music. Plato the Greek author of philosophical dialogues n meta- physics, politics and ethics once said

                        “Music gives a soul to the universe,

                                       Wings to the mind,

                            Flight to the imagination and

                                       Life to everything”

MUSIC is what I want to be

Music is a part of our soul,

To be like her should be our goal.

Selfless, kind and forgiving,
She never minds a mistake.
Sharing and caring,
To her, it doesn’t matter WHO plays.Image result for music

Helpful, not to one but all,
Bringing happiness in lives.
For her, no one is ever too small,
Children, husbands and wives.

I hope that I can too one day,
Have all these qualities in me.
Till then, this is what I’ll hope and say,
And continue to dream.

Music: Gods Universal language

As the tune reaches my ears all the tensions and worries are long gone,
Then emotions of happiness and ecstasy are born;
Music makes me forget all my pain,
Brings out the sunshine when all I can see is rain;
Music is the ray of hope in the darkest of times,
Knowing that time moves forward, the clock always chimes;
Music is the escape from reality,
Just like the song of the lashing wild waves of the sea.
 Music that friend that stays by your side,

Even after it is all over and your tears have dried,
It pulls you into a world of its own,
As it warms up a heart as cold as stone.
Music is the rhythm to which your heart beats,
It is the feeling that you get when your inner voice speaks,
It is the sound that leads you to the divine,
And  the positive energy that makes you feel alive.
Music can attain utmost purity,
And hence music is my therapy.
